THE JAZZETTES USA is a music group of longtime friends and professional singing musicians featuring Cami Thompson on percussion and vocals, Julie Machado on upright and electric basses and vocals and Erika Paul on piano and vocals. Together, these ladies of song play an eclectic mix of jazz, swing, blues, standards, latin, R&B, pop, rock, bluegrass, vintage classics, rarely heard treasures and comic delights. Between solo features with back-up vocals and three-part harmonies, these three talented sisters in music have great fun together making the music and sharing it! Between the three of them, there are easily 150 years of accumulated experience, education, dedication and professional stage time in music, teaching, coaching and performance. Together on stage, they are simply musical magic. And they all still refuse to act their age!

Mighty Mike Schermer was a fixture on the Bay Area blues scene for over 20 years when he relocated to Austin, TX, in 2009 and joined the touring band of swamp-boogie piano legend Marcia Ball. He had already carved out a solid solo career with four critically acclaimed albums, an award winning single, and thousands of performances at festivals and nightclubs the world over. He was also the "go to guy" sideman for such heavy weights as Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Angela Strehli, Bonnie Raitt, Howard Tate, Charlie Musselwhite, Sista Monica, Shana Morrison, and many, many more. Oh yes...we may be judged by the company we keep, but when the spotlight shines, a solo artist also must be able to bring the goods all on his own. Mighty Mike Schermer delivers on all fronts! With his searing tone and passionate delivery Mighty Mike has long been a respected, if sometimes underrated, favorite of blues guitar fans. With the release of his last four albums - "Be Somebody" (2013), "Blues In Good Hands" (2016), "Bad Tattoo" (2019) and his latest, "Just Gettin' Good" (2022) - he cemented his reputation as one of the finest and most prolific songwriters in the genre.

Performers: Mighty Mike Schermer - Guitar/Vocals, Kris Landrum - Keyboards, Joe McKenna - Bass, Tyler Cravines - Drums, Holly Sing - Tenor Saxophone, and Warren Charles Jones - Percussion.
